Building Healthy Places 1:12:28
Webinar Summary:

Around the country, cities have been moving rapidly to adapt roads, parking lots, and other transportation assets to the needs of residents to travel, recreate, and support local business in safer and socially distant ways. From slow streets, to dining streets, to closed streets, to the use of parking facilities for drive-in movies, farmer’s markets, and children’s play zones, communities are taking a fresh look at existing transportation infrastructure.

How are considerations of social and racial equity informing these decisions? How well are these shifts meeting the needs of communities of color? What does community engagement look like during a pandemic? And are these solutions only responding to the current health challenge or will they forever alter how our transportation infrastructure functions? Join the conversation with experts from around the country to explore transportation, public space, and equity in the time of COVID-19.
